Chapter 9:

6:09 you pronounced it "Newlum" when it's "Nordland." I'm not sure if you pronounced like what they did in the past and if you did, I apologize.

If you want an easier way for me to locate your mistakes let me know as this is my first time! thanks for all you do!

Thank you for pointing that one out. I had to go back and listen :) I guess I'm pronouncing it in Norwegian (the source language), but I know for a fact that I don't do that in later chapters, so I'll go back and fix it.

It is perfect when you give me the time stamp, that is the best way for me to find it. I'll upload an edited version later :)

By the way, please let me know if you would like to commit to listening to the whole rest of the book (that would make you the DPL, dedicated proof listener). Apart from stating that you intend to listen to the whole thing, there isn't much difference from what you're doing right now. You would get access to the MW (magic window, the scrolling window in the first post), and you would toggle from Ready for PL to See PL notes or PL OK. If not, your help in prooflistening to as many chapters as you'd like is greatly appreciated :thumbs:

I'm so sorry as I don't have time to be a dedicated listener. I only do this in my free time and that is if I have work or not which varies. Thank you for the opportunity though!

Chapter 10:
0:00, In the beginning, you said "Chapter 10" twice

12:32 you said "like the one over there in the sound." It should be "like that one over the sound there"

Thank you! I'll get it fixed this weekend. No worries about not having the time to commit to being DPL. I really appreciate that you have "stopped by" to listen to these sections. Don't ever feel pressured to do more than you want to here -- that's the only way we can keep it fun! And even if things sit around for a while, everything gets done in the end :D

ETA: I have fixed chapters 9 and 10, they are now ready for spot-check

Ah okie I won't be pressured haha, thank you for your understanding and all you do.
Chapter 11: 18:27 you said "heel" instead of "keel." I'm not sure if I heard that right.

Thank you for the catch! Heel and keel are definitely not the same :wink:
